2023 Boston Small Business Holiday Gift Guide


Consider shopping small this holiday season – it’s so important to support our small business neighbors and friends in and around Boston.

Every time a small business makes a sale, you’re supporting them, their family, their employees’ families, and your local economy.

Shop small this year and show your support for the incredible entrepreneurs around you!

More ways to support local businesses:

– Purchase gift cards or cookbooks from local restaurants

– Follow, comment, like, save, and share businesses posts on Instagram

– Leave reviews for your favorite businesses on Yelp and Google

– Etsy is also an AMAZING place to find goods made by small businesses. There are some large, international sellers and warehouse-type sellers in the US though, too – so do a minute or two of digging on their about page or Instagram page after you find a product you love to make sure they’re a small / local business


This list is also geared towards products available to purchase online or in person for the holidays, not personal services – if you are looking for local service providers for hair, makeup, nails, cakes, catering, anything like that, shoot me a message!
